Kerry Packer, Australia's richest man until his death on Boxing Day, was a media and gambling mogul -- and famous for little else besides. So some protestors, annoyed at the government giving him the accolade of an official State memorial service (and funding it), turned up at it at the Opera House today -- and got immediately arrested -- panorama. The authorities seem determined to make the Opera House a totally protest-free zone. Pic. (The large cruise ship in the background is the QE2.)

Painted folk - panorama - charging into the surf at Maroubra Beach yesterday -- after a charity bike ride. This beach is the the hangout of the Maroubra Boys, self-appointed local surfer beach guardians and the subject of a lot of media attention in the last few years. I saw a couple of the 'Bra Boys, identifiable by the tattoos on their shoulders. The beach itself, which I hadnt visited for ages, has its charms, with a large undeveloped area at its southern end giving it a bit of a wilderness feel.
